The Gift of Hope


Friendship is a gift.
I am very blessed in my life to have remarkable friends
 that are true gifts from the Lord.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and comes down from the Father of lights,
 with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
James 1:17
My friend, Mary Ann, is an example of God's good and perfect gifts.
Mary Ann is a beautiful person on the inside and out -
 she brings sunshine in dark places, 
the word of the Lord in due season and HOPE in all situations.
Today I wanted to honor my precious friend with a gift.
The Gift of Hope!  
Tucked inside this little bag is a friendship tea cup -
a way to show my beloved friend how much she means to me.
HOPE is the confident expectation of GOOD!
Psalm 33:22
Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord,
for our hope is in you alone.

Look!  A matched set!
Tea for Two!
Tea for me and tea for you!!
Hebrews 6:19
This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls.
It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.
...a friend loves at all times!

A set of matching cups for friends to enjoy together! 

Psalm 94:19
When doubts filled my mind,
your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.
May the Lord God of HOPE fill all of you -
 my dear blogging friends - with all joy!
Romans 15:13

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
